We can “digitize” your slides like never before – FREE trial offer

The problems with getting your slide collection “digitized” are well known. It’s an extremely time-consuming and fiddly job to manually keep changing adaptors or slide carriers regardless of how you scan them. For example, slide copiers attached to a digital SLR can only be done singularly; film scanners only take a maximum of five slides to an adaptor and even the quickest method by use of a print scanner will only take a maximum of twelve slides at once. The changeover time to re-load slides eventually drives most photographers mad with frustration. In addition to the time-constraint problem there is the more important issue of quality. Slide photographers are some of the most quality conscious image makers around. Why would you want to degrade an image during transfer to such a low level whereby it’s almost unrecognizable from the original? Such is the proposition sold by cheap newspaper offers e.g. the Ion 35mm Film and Slide Scanner. Its name alone is a misrepresentation - it’s not a scanner but simply a film camera that copies your images at a lowly 5 megapixels yet costs £90 for the privilege.

Our new SlideSnap Pro is uniquely different solution to your slide scanning needs. It is like a slide copier on steroids. The basic methodology is that we take a professional Kodak Carousel projector and then replace the halogen lamp with a diffused LED light source. We then add a Nikon D7000 to record the projected images onto a memory card via an electronic control pad to synchronize the picture taking.
